Hold the steel in a near-vertical position with the tip resting on a non-slippery surface. Start with the heel of the knife against one side of the steel. Maintain light pressure while drawing the knife down the shaft of the steel. Continue in a smooth motion. Complete the movement by drawing the knife all the way to the tip. Repeat the action with the blade against the steels other side. Repeat these steps to complete the honing of the knife.
